How different were the major cultural centres from the quieter backwaters of the Roman Empire? The authors focus on the fruits of archaeological knowledge and reconstruct vividly the social situation of the early communities - for only by seeing many of the texts against their historical and geographical background is it possible to realise their full impact.;Using specific evidence, important distinctions are also made clear in abstract areas of thought about early church doctrine and practice. What, for example, were a particular community's perspectives on worship, prayer and ethics, or the attitude of the church to the outside world, including its strategy for salvation.
